As you probably noticed, this flap over the Christmas tree was at the I.U. Indianapolis Law School and not the main IU campus law school in Bloomington, IN. (where such ivory tower behavior is to be expected). The Indianapolis Law School was traditionally a more practitioner-oriented, and some would say “blue collar” school: it was originally an evening school which educated returning servicemen from WWII — many with families and jobs.
I can’t believe that this type of pc cowardice is going to sit well with it’s alumni — speaking of which I wonder what it’s most famous alumnus, Dan Quayle, would have to say in response.
